Because good research needs good data

Leveraging High Performance Computing Resources for Managing Large Datasets workshop

Co-located with IEEE Big Data Conference 2014

27 October 2014 |

Co-located with the 2014 IEEE Big Data conference, a one-day hands-on workshop on leveraging High Performance Computing (HPC) resources for Big Data management will be held between October 27 to October 30, 2014 in Washington D.C.

The target audience includes, but is not limited to, archivists, librarians, data curators, researchers, educators and students.

No prior HPC experience is required. During this hands-on workshop, the participants will:

  • Get acquainted with the Big Data management challenges and learn about some of the solution strategies to mitigate those challenges using HPC
  • Get an introduction to the national CyberInfrastructure called XSEDE, and the high-end storage and computing environment at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC)
  • Get access to the TACC computing and storage resources for participating in the hands-on sessions
  • Develop practical skills for defining Big Data management workflows on HPC resources

Detailed information about the workshop and the agenda is available here.
